Microsoft has been participating in the blockchain space since 2015 and already represent itself as one of the major players to be reckoned with. For example, previously Microsoft with its blockchain-based product Mi­crosoft Blockchain Azure concluded a partnership with a global electronic marketplace for buying and selling securities, Nasdaq, in order to de­liver highly se­cure in­ter­op­er­a­tion be­tween the Nas­daq Fi­nan­cial Frame­work core in­fra­struc­ture.

Microsoft Azure Blockchain is a BaaS prod­uct, which al­lows com­pa­nies to use a flex­i­ble ver­sion of Ethereum, mod­i­fied specif­i­cally for their busi­ness needs.
